Homosexual Tunisian Man Arrested

Secular Talk

According to Vice News, human rights groups are condemning Tunisia for its treatment of gays after authorities sentenced a man to a year in prison for sodomy and subjected him to an anal probe.

The case has generated widespread attention after the accused went public and received unprecedented support from local and international human rights groups.

Human Rights Watch writes:

“The police then opened a separate investigation for alleged homosexuality and required the man to undergo an anal examination by a forensic medical doctor at the Sahloul Hospital in Sousse on September 9, the lawyer said.”

Sources state that the same treatment persists in Egypt:
